“Plain motel with a pool”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

This small basic motel is ok for a stopover, but price seemed a bit steep for what you get. Booked this motel through its own site as price was ok for the area, as many others are quite expensive .
Place has a indoor pool which is a bit old but adequate . We had a queen room which was a bit dated but clean and roomy.Bathroom is a bit small and the hand basin is in the main room ,not in the bathroom. A small couch and a small table with two chairs is available in the room . Bed was comfortable The is a fuel station quite close, which has a vast array of food. Onsite resturant is quite pricey and only open in the evening for limited hours . My only complaint was the fact that you have to pay for anything extra including milk and any kitchen utensils you may need for meals.Breakfast was quite expensive as well. Its not bad for a stopover

Room Tip: Dont take cheaper ones in the frontt of the hotel, as its facing a very busy highway and extremely n...

Have stayed in a lot of Motels and this was considerably one of the worst. The room was shabby and in need of a complete overhaul, carpet not clean but were surprised the sheets were clean. Room cost $90 booked for two nights only stayed one. Was worth losing $90 not to have to stay there. Our next stop cost the same but was paradise compared to this. Beware of the internet pictures, truck parking at the rear of our room and smell of fertilizer from garden supplier. If you want cheap and very nasty go there.

We were driving from Melbourne to Adelaide and we just needed one cheap place for the night. We have been nicely surprised by the Jubilee Motor Inn. The owner was very friendly and explained to us all the stuffs to do in Mount Gambier. Thanks to him, we saw the two sinkholes, and the lake which was unfortunately not blue at this time of the year but still very nice. The room was very large and pleasant, despite looking a little bit old. The weather was quiet cold, and the warming device functioned well. It was very quiet despite the proximity of the road (we were located a little bit off the road).

In my job I have stayed at a lot of motel and hotels in Mount Gambier over the years, mainly in the under $100 range. Stayed 2 nights at the Jubilee Motor Inn for $85 per night. Was a really quiet room off road. There are cheaper ones at the front for $80 but recommend paying the extra $5 for off road. The room is small and a bit older decor but it has everything you need. Comfy bed. Great shower with plenty of hot water and full on pressure. Austar TV. Indoor heated pool (although didnt use that). Ate in restaurant. Gotta try the mixed grill. It was enormous. Staff were really helpful with faxes. Good wireless reception and speed. Will book there again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are really quiet

We were not happy with this place at all. Considering there were rooms in the back quite away from the road, we were given a room only meters from the hwy, with cattle trucks roaring past all night long.

Nothing close of interest except the sinkhole, which was beautiful but no possums, which was the ONLY reason we stopped in the town to begin with.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far from the road as possible !
